The first and most often used of all of the Gorean slave positions, and one of the first ones a slave learns. The command is often called "Nadu," from what seems to be a common Gorean word for "kneel." In this position the slave kneels and sits upon her heels with her back and shoulders straight, her chest out, belly in, and her head up, though she averts her eyes to the floor. Her thighs are open, widely spread, and her hands rest upon her thighs. A common misconception of this position is that the ankles are crossed. Occasionally the wrists are crossed behind the back, a variation which seems to be practiced in several cities, notably the city of Thentis. There is a nonverbal command signal associated with this position: to signal that the slave should assume the position, the Master may simply point to the floor and then, with his first two fingers extended and his hand palm-downward, spread his first two fingers open (the index and pointer fingers) as if they were the slave's "legs" opening to kneel. The slave is expected to respond to this gesture as they would to the spoken command.

"Come now, my pretty slaves,' said Ginger, 'kneel straight. Back straight, heads up. Back on your heels there! Spread those pretty knees. Yes, that is the way men like it. Put your hands, palms down, on your thighs. Good. good. Excellent!' The girls now knelt in the coffle as pleasure slaves."
Savages of Gor pg 155

'Nadu!' he snapped. She swiftly turned, facing him, and dropped to her knees. She knelt back on her heels, her back straight, her hands on her thighs, her head up, her knees wide. It was the position of the pleasure slave.
Explorers of Gor pg 77

"It is customary in the kneeling position to remain a few feet back from the male. The kneeling position, itself, expresses the servitude of the slave, and her submission. The distance serves three major purposes. It symbolizes, in the distance, as well as in the differential height, the social inferiority of the slave to the master. It puts the slave in a position, where all of her, for the Master's delight, can be seen. A kneeling woman is incredibly beautiful. It also puts enough space between the slave and the free male so that the releasing of his rapacity is then likely to require a decision, and is less likely to be simply, reflexively, triggered. This is regarded as being particularly important when the slave is in the presence of a male who is not her Master. The kneeling position, thus, interestingly, can occasionally provide a measure of security, if not a tenuous one, for the slave, tending to reduce, to some extent, the frequency in which, in a culture with such interpersonal proximities, she might be subjected to unauthorized rape. This same tiny measure of protection, of course, puts her in much greater danger from her real Master, for he, observing her, seeing her kneeling beautifully before him, can also delay in his considerations as to her suitable exploitations."
Dancer of Gor pg. 156

Nadu Note: In the position of nadu, a slaves hands show her desire towards the One she kneels before.. many seem to think that it is always knelt in palms up.. that isnt the case, a girl would turn her palms up to Him showing that she desired to please in any way.

"Position!" I snapped. Swiftly she knelt again, as she had been commanded earlier. "You obey with the alacrity of a slave girl," I observed. "If I do not," she said, "I could be punished as one, could I not?" "Yes," I said, "and would be." I walked about her, examining her, She kept her back very straight, and her head up. I was then again before her. I noted that the palm of her hands, so soft, so vulnerable, had turned on her thighs, so that they faced up. Among slave girls this is a common ways of signaling need, helplessness, a desire to please.

Nice piece. And although it really depends on the preference of the Master, I think the chin should be down a bit, not just the eyes, as is properly submissive.

I think a Gorean Master might interpret that particular pose as insolence. You might be beaten for it. ;)
